Flu and Parkinson's - how H5N1 bird flu causes neural degeneration in mice
People infected with the bird flu virus - influenza A subtype H5N1 - go through the usual symptoms of fever, aching muscles and cough. The virus is so virulent that 60% of infected humans have died. But according to a study in mice, the infection could also take a more inconspicuous toll on the brain, causing the sorts of damage that could increase the risk of diseases like Parkinson's and Alzheimer's many years after the virus has been cleared.
…a pandemic H5N1 pathogen, or other neurotropic influenza virus, could initiate CNS disorders of protein aggregation including Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases.
we believe this H5N1 infection changes the curve. It makes the brain more sensitive to another hit, possibly involving other environmental toxins...
Scientists say H5N1 avian flu may boost risk for brain diseases

Also fyi marg - You know I've always said that the real danger with pandemics is NOT the fatality rate, but rather the long term chronic disease that can follow infection. ...And the research continues to validate my observation.
In 1928 Richard Simmons, M.D. hypothesized that colds and flu virus enter through the ear canal. His findings were dismissed by the medical community. According to Dr. Simmons, contrary to what you may think or have been taught about how you catch the flu or the cold there is only one way that you can catch the two, and that"s via the ear canal not through the eyes or nose or mouth as most have believed.
Keeping your fingers out of your ears will greatly reduce your chances of catching them, but then again these two are microscopic and can be air-born and may land on or even in your ear. Once they have entered the inner-ear (middle-ear) there they begin their breeding process, and from there they have access to every avenue throughout our body to travel to and to infect and make us sick.
In 1938 German researchers had great success using hydrogen peroxide in dealing with colds and the flu. Their data has been ignored for over 60 years. It is important to begin treatment as soon as symptoms appear. If treatment is started promptly effectiveness seems to be in the 80% range.
We have found remarkable results in curing the flu & cold within 12 to 14 hours when administering a few drops of 3% Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) into each infected ear, (sometimes only one ear is infected) The H2O2 starts working within 2 to 3 minutes in killing the flu or cold; there will be some bubbling and in some cases mild stinging occurs. Wait until the bubbling & stinging subside (usually 5 to 10 min) then drain onto tissue and repeat other ear. A bottle of Hydrogen Peroxide in 3% solution is available at any drug store for a couple of dollars. Although this method is perfectly safe for infant/children to use, the loud bubbling and stinging frightens them, they"ll need someone they trust to put the hp in their ears. (don"t get h2o2 in the eyes- if you do, flush with water)
You know that the scaremongering comes from the CDC and big pharma

Sofi, how long the bird flu is been around? don't you think that if it was so virulent we will be wiped out a long time ago
something doesn't add here, sorry but something doesn't sit well with me.
I agree completely soficrow. Its one reason that the "dismantle regulation and oversight" political movement concerns me. We aren't doing enough as it is - and trusting our corporate overlords to be responsible "on faith" is, IMHO, a deadly gamble we are sure to lose.
These things aren't even being properly researched, investigated and made public knowledge, so as to protect the mighty profits.
I sometimes wonder if the wizards pulling the strings think they'll somehow be immune to the pandemic they may help inadvertently create.
